Hottrax has always been an underground-oriented label dedicated to showcasing the darker side of the dance floor. This series does just that, with Jones's careful A&R shining a light on the best talent.

Candidate opens up with the excellent "Sore Feet Society," a turbo-charged cut that takes you to the heart of the dance floor. It's a raved-up sound with rapped vocals that bring the attitude next to big synth stabs and sci-fi FX. Next is the UK's talented Lee Jeffrey, released on respected labels such as Madtech Records and Elrow. "Doin' It 4 Saz" has real swagger - garage-inflected drums that swing back and forth beneath chopped-up vocals and bright synths that are perfect for pumping any party.

Lastly, Toronto scene pioneer Hatiras and Too Many Rules label head Javi Bora are frequent collaborators who cook up the goods again here. Their "Raw & Dirty" is a hefty house banger with gritty synth textures and weighty drums. Dark vocals bring a late-night edge to these most physical and high-impact sounds.
